What a nice little stop. I had the Debbie combo with Carolina dog and potato salad. My wife had the NYC dog. The hot dog itself were very good. I enjoyed my Carolina dog, was different than I would normally do. Finished my wives and...was glad the bun wasn’t soggy from the sauerkraut. Potato salad good flavor, but for me a little too much Mayo. Lemonade, could have been better, for homemade would have expected little more flavor, felt it was watered down. Happy customer.More

Great lunch. We had a wide variety of hot dogs, and we all enjoyed them. They are loaded with toppings and filling. They were also extremely friendly. This will be a must stop for us in the future when we are near. Not only was...the food great, but so was the staff. Can’t beat that!More

Great hot dogs with a variety of themed toppings. The mac n cheese was creamy. Delicious, refreshing lemonade. Fast, professional service. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I ate lunch here on 4/22/21. We each had a Kosher hot dog; mine with slaw, mustard and onions. Hubby's with ketchup, relish and onions. We each had a Sprite (in the can.....ugh!). The total for all came to $15.00. Felt that...was a bit much for 2 hot dogs and 2 Sprite sodas in a can. The hot dogs were not even foot longs!!!! However, the hot dogs were quite good and the service was prompt, helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our lunch at one of their picnic tables while enjoying the sunshine on a rather breezy, chilly day!!More

Franks is the perfect place to stop on trips to Hatteras, before or after a swim or when just passing through. Shaded tables, ice cold beer and too many choices for a solo diner. Bring friends and share a bite of at least four different...dogs. Take home some BBQ and rolls for a meal the next day. Yum!More

Excellent quality! The dogs themselves, buns and toppings all top notch. Don’t sleep on the brisket- perfect to grab in bulk and have on hand for sandwiches throughout the week!

Grew up with Coney Island hot dogs and haven’t had one as good as I did at Uncle Franks since I left NY. BBQ is as good if not better. Have to make this stop on the way to the island. Order and pay online...and no contact pick up. Win, winMore

Nathans has nothing on Franks... the dogs were fantastic. Good selection of several varieties of dogs, i went for the Carolina dog, pulled pork and dog were cooked perfectly. Well made dog. Decent beer selection too. I was driving so I went for the Arnold...Palmer instead, it had a good mix of lemonade and tea, not too sweet... great find. I stumbled across it while at Waves Market picking some supplies.More

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Had a Detroit dog with coleslaw instead of cheddar. Portions are large. Good place for a large variety of dogs.

Great stop for a quick bite to eat along on the highway. Cute 'themed' dogs were good and we enjoyed sitting outside.

We were looking for a place we could stop with our dogs. Not only did they have a small outside seating area, but the wonderful employee interacted with our pups and gave them hotdogs and treats. The hot dogs (for us humans) were unique with...toppings and very tasty. Nice stop for a quick snack.More

I love LOCAL. This place is one of a kind. There a list of 40 different hot dogs built off of a good traditional Nathan frank. It’s all toppings though. No sign of a half smoke, sausage or brats. Sure wish the ‘dogs’ could mix...it up but I’ll continue to promote that wacky mix of toppings. Debbie keeps the creativity that we need more of in the OBX.More
